This event will be postponed to 2021 due to the current COVID-19 crisis.

Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham recently said that our international borders are likely to remain closed until the end of the year, preventing our ability to present any international artists in 2020.

For the first time since opening in 2015, we will have an entire concert season without our flagship weekend event: UKARIA 24 will not take place on Friday 16–Sunday 18 October this year. Three international artists were set to be joining us for this special event – Lawrence Power (curator/viola/violin), Torleif Thedéen (cello) and Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano) – along with students from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM).

The good news is that we are currently working with all the musicians to reschedule the event to 2021 unchanged: where possible, the line up and program will remain the same. The weekend we have currently flagged as a possibility is Friday 24–Sunday 26 September 2021.

To our patrons who have already booked tickets to any of the concerts, or a Weekend Pass, we encourage you to keep your tickets, as they will automatically be transferred over to the new date as soon as it is confirmed. As always, you'll also have the option to log in to your account at any time and request a full refund, a gift voucher credit (valid until 31 December 2022), or gift your tickets back to UKARIA as a tax-deductible donation. If you have any questions, or experience any difficulties logging into your account, please don't hesitate to contact us on (08) 8227 1277.



'It is as though the instruments are in love with each other,' remarked the Romanian musicologist Eusebius Mandyczewski upon hearing the Brahms Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114. The range and timbral qualities of the clarinet part make it readily adaptable to the viola – something Schumann had already explored forty years earlier in his Three Fantasy Pieces, Op. 73. Hear these iconic works 'reimagined' by three of the world's greatest chamber musicians: Lawrence Power (viola), Torleif Thedéen (cello) and Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano).
